FIT Blackpool is Back!

Thanks to the funding from the EFL Trust, Blackpool FC Community Trust are able to deliver FIT BLACKPOOL! A FREE 13-week programme for males and females in Blackpool to help them make better lifestyle choices. 

With support from staff at Blackpool FC Community Trust and other group members you’ll get tips to:

  • Improve your eating habits
  • Cut down on alcohol
  • Increase your activity levels
  • Reduce your weight and waistline
  • Support each other to stay on track

The 13-week programme starts with a session which includes an initial health check and a discussion about what to expect from the course. The 12 weeks that follow are split between classroom health and education workshops and physical activity sessions.

Sessions for male and female programmes take place throughout the week, a breakdown of the times can be seen below:

Monday 17th January (Female): 6pm to 7:30pm

Wednesday 19th January (Female): 10am to 11:30am

Thursday 20th January (Male): 10am to 11:30am

Thursday 20th January (Male): 6pm to 7:30pm

Here from our current participants:

“This programme has saved my life; I know that some will think that is dramatic, but I was on a downward spiral. I have used all the excuses “it’s down to lockdown” etc but the truth is I was on the large side before covid entered this world. The free Fit Blackpool programme helped me achieve something that at the age of 42 I thought would never happen. Not only have I lost weight (over 2 stone in just 10 weeks) but my whole lifestyle has changed. Before the programme I was a something and chips man, finish work and straight on the sofa watching whatever rubbish was on the box. Now I eat my 5 a day which was unheard, enjoy exercising and finally living life and not just existing. I feel like I have got my life back. A massive thanks goes to the EFL Trust and BFCCT, especially, Nathan, Kim and Gary and all of the other participants who make every session a joy.”
